Cook's Essentials 4qt Digital Pressure Cooker is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 34.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst purchase ever Tried using this pressure twice! Cannot get the pressure started and when I thought I did, the steam would escape and the time would not count down. Wasn’t happy with how the cover works. Too late to return.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best gadget ever! I made chicken rice soup using frozen chicken breast, frozen vegetables, dry rice in 20 minutes!!! White chicken chili using frozen chicken and DRY BEANS in 35 minutes! Easy to use. The only complaint i have is that it is difficult to clean the top edge of the cooker where the lid sets on the unit as my family dribbles food when serving themselves...

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Stopped Working. I received this pressure cooker the end of July and used in twice in the last few months. I went to use it last week and it had died. I am sending it back but I am being made to pay the return shipping. Really not fair since it was still brand new when it stopped working. Very disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from awesome The first dish I made in my pressure cooker was smothered pork chops, and it turned out fantastic. I love that I can brown the chops, then saute the onions, make the liquid, and finally cook it all (high pressure) IN ONE PAN!! The chops came out tender and juicy, and so full of flavor. Going to do a pot roast next. This is both fun and practical. So easy to clean too. However I was surprised the book says not to add raw noodles or rice if you are using the pressure setting, as they have a tendency to foam, and that blocks up the pressure release valve. Still an awesome cooker though.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from So far, so good Reviewing the instructions, they are really short on information. I use the instructions for handling food under pressure from my stove top very large presto cooker. I went to the library, no really good cook books there, the denim lady's book is mostly add a 1/2 cup of cream...really? This is like the horror story of the American diet and obesity. They all lack proper handling of beans, and none of them contain nutritional information. But, the pot itself is nice, easy to clean. Takes a long time to get up to full 15psi as compared to a stove top.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Basic Pressure Cooker This little pressure cooker is a no frills and affordable option for someone who has wanted a pressure cooker but scared away by the price. The display is pretty straight forward; you put it on the setting, time, and push start. I find going to YouTube is very helpful when trying to figure out how long to cook a certain food or weight of meat. For example I've used this little guy to cook a whole 4 lb. chicken in 30 minutes thawed or 50 minutes from frozen. I'm fairly new to pressure cooking, only about a month experience, but I use more often than oven or stove because cooking is so fast and meat is so tender. The 4 qt is great for cooking for 1 to 4 people or for cooking side dishes. I also got the 6 qt when I got this, which is great for when I need both cookers to cook enough to feed 8 to 10, like family and friends gathering. A huge plus is cleaning up is a snap. Another beauty about this product is by not including the inserts for cooking desserts, steaming, etc., the cooker by itself is very affordable but you still have the option to get them separately. Many other more expensive pressure cookers are very nice with all kinds of gadgets that you may never use. So with this you don't pay for what you don't need.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 4 Qt. Pressure Cooker I wish to thank you for not including the instruction manual with recipes. The pressure cooker keeps beeping and I have no clue why. WHY DIDN'T HAVE INCLUDED THE MANUAL AND RECIPES???????????????????????????????? NANCY T.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product I ordered the larger 6qt. last year and loved it, so I decided to order the smaller 4qt. since there is only my husband and myself. The smaller unit was the perfect size for the smaller meals I wanted to prepare. Unfortunately, after putting the pressure valve to pressure, and setting high pressure for 30min. The pressure valve never closed, steam filled the kitchen for 20min until all the liquid evaporated. I quickly set the valve to steam to release any pressure still built up in the unit. I call customer service to understand if this was normal, and they indicated "NO", I should return the unit for replacement. Even after this experience, I have to say "I love using pressure cookers" they turn out great meals in no time at all.
